Design inspiration: photos in focus

There is charm and a strange unworldly power in them. The photos are the pieces of our lives. They save the memories of our most flawlessly happy times. Remember the black and white one of the wedding of your grandparents that was nearly torn, but saved in an old frame that was falling apart. Remember how this photo stayed on the fireplace of your grandparents’ house and how your granny passionately told you the story of their love, their sorrows and their joys, million times, whenever you visited that house. Remember the photo of you as a baby, when you first went home, remember the easy and kind smile of your mom and the undisguised happiness in your father’s eyes. Remember the first photo of you and your one and only beloved on that beach when you were too happy to think how you look like and today it’s a pleasure to see this moment of pure bliss.

The photos are emotions on paper and bring you enthralling sensations, so have them at your house.

Your home is a reflection of your dreams, you future and your past and having your most incredible moments hanged on the walls of your house will make it more personal, more you, more delightful.

Design inspiration2In frames

That is maybe the easiest part. Have beautiful frames with even more beautiful photos in them and arrange them all over the house: in the bedrooms, in the living rooms in the hallway. Every time you walk and look around you will enjoy a different moment of your life and these little simple things will make you feel uniquely fortunate to have what you have now.

Or without frames

This is a really popular designing solution now. Hang them around without even putting them into frames. You need only photos in a bigger size and some desire to arrange them beautifully around your home.

On your desk

This sounds like cliché, but where you work, you need some inspiration and motivation most of the time, because no matter how much you adore your job, there always comes a moment, when you simply want to give up and go on an island with no one, just so you can be at ease and relax once and for all in your life. But if you have a photo from your last trip to Abu Dhabi, every time you look at it, you will think of the amazing holiday you had and the even more delightful ones that are about to come. Life is nice, you just needed a reminder.

In albums 

You have rented the property you live in and no matter how much you want to make it more homey and cozy with some photos, you are thus risking your security deposit and you simply don’t want to say good-bye to this money yet. However, this is not a problem at all, because you can still arrange all your photos in an album and then put it on the coffee table in the living room, where everyone who comes by will be able to relish it.
